Domaine Tollot-Beaut Corton Bressandes 2013
|Appellation||Cote de Beaune|
Wine SpectatorSilky and lush, with cherry, raspberry and smoke aromas and flavors in an approachable style. Balanced, though this needs time to resolve all the components. Offers fine spicy length. Best from 2018 through 2030. 45 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateUnlike the Corton '13, the 2013 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru was unaffected by hail. It has a ripe and fresh prune-tinged bouquet that is a little too showy for my liking. The palate is medium-bodied with quite dense, structured tannins. There is a spicy edge to the fruit, although contrary to expectations, I find slightly more harmony and finesse to the straight Corton this year. Actually, a feuillette showed more expressively and with more grace, so perhaps that is the shape of things to come?
